The typical Kingdom Hearts amv uses maybe 3% of all "amvable" video footage from the game. But it was the entire Kingdom Hearts that I fell in love with, not just its opening and ending movies. So I set out to create a tribute video that would, in my eyes, do the game justice.
I wanted to really capture the spirit of the game in this video. It is meant to be every bit as colorful, gratuitous, and shamelessly fun as the game itself. If you are a Kingdom Hearts fan, I hope you will love this video. If you are not, then I hope that I have made it accessible enough for you to enjoy it still.
To create this amv, I replayed the game over the course of four months, capturing all the cutscenes via a line-in to a digital camcorder. My goal was to showcase a bit of every keyblade and every world in this video, so I switched weapons often to get the best footage. Organizing and cleaning up the footage took about another month, after which I finally sat down to edit.
This project would not have happened if I hadn't been stumped about what to give krzT for her 18th birthday this spring. I am, of course, a total procrastinator, so now I'm releasing this as a very belated present on krzT's half-birthday. One of the two easter eggs in this amv relates to this purpose. See if you can find the other!
Comments are welcome, as always. Please enjoy! :)
